Lost photos in Bridge 2018 CC

Dear Community,

 

I was just exporting files from Lightroom, when I accidentally deleted the originals that lightroom wanted to usw to export the edited versions.

So of course lightroom said "cannot find the original files anymore". However they are NOT in the trash can and I also cannot find them in the library cache. I find the ones I did not delete in the cache.

I use Bridge 2018 CC on a Mac 10.15.7. Catalina. The files were on an SD Card. It did not ask me if I'm sure I wish to delete. They were just gone. (I used command delete) The return button was greyed out.

Thank you,
Iris

So this might help somebody...

 

I redid all my work (marking photos of 3 years in Mac Photos and exporting them again) however, when I restarted the computer later, the missing photos were suddenly in the trash. Of course I know, that restarting the computer helps with several issues, but I didn't dare because I thought I would lose some caches that could possibly recover the photos.
So I did everything again but maybe it helps somebody else in the future.

There were so many variables in your original story that it was almost impossible to root them all out in an efficient manner. I'm very happy that you had a good ending. It is VERY rare for images to just "disappear."
